Latin American Student Ambassador 

Hola! My name is Natalia and I am currently doing a masters in Climate change and international development. When applying for a masters I looked at other options but UEA caught my eye since the course they offered couldn’t have been a better fit for what I wanted to do. Of course, before deciding to come I did a thorough investigation to see if UEA was for me. The university has a great reputation and out of the 16,872 students in the university 2,820 are internationals which give the opportunity to meet people from all over the world such as from Norway, Russia, Japan, Italy and more! The university offers many opportunities to grow both academically and professionally, from career fairs to seminars to meeting people such as Jane Goodall and Isabel Allende, there is always a chance to expand your horizons. The university provides many services that support student throughout their time at UEA, they understand that being away from home can sometimes be difficult and want to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, want to help build a home away from home.

Speaking of home, from the moment I arrived to UEA and Norwich is felt like home! People are very friendly and there are many places to see and explore making it very difficult to get bored. In a 3-minute walk from the university you can immerse yourself in nature see a bit of wildlife and even meet some ponies on the way. There are infinite societies to join, they have something for everyone, from pasta society to wall climbing society to yoga society, you will always find someone with common interest and make great friends along the way.

So far, I have made lifelong friends whom I have shared great experiences with, I have also learned so much from amazing professors who are always available to help and none of these things would have been possible if I hadn’t come to UEA.  The university has excelled my expectations and I am sure it will do the same for you! If you have any questions feel free to contact me through the Latin American students Facebook page or you can email me at Latinamerican.students@uea.ac.uk

¡Hola! Mi nombre es Natalia y estoy haciendo una maestría en Cambio climático y desarrollo internacional. Cuando estaba aplicando para la maestría vi muchas opciones, pero UEA se destaco entre todas, ya que el curso que ofrecían no pudo haber encajado mejor con lo que yo quería hacer. Claro, antes de elegir venir aquí hice una investigación para ver si UEA en verdad era para mí. Para comenzar, la universidad tiene una gran reputación y de 16,872 estudiantes en la universidad, 2,820 son internacionales lo cual da la oportunidad de conocer a personas de todo el mundo como de Noruega, Rusia, Japón, Italia y de muchos países más. La universidad ofrece muchas oportunidades para crecer académica y profesionalmente, por ejemplo, ferias de empleos, seminarios y conocer a personas inspiradoras como Jane Goodall y Isabel Allende. La universidad ofrece muchos servicios que apoyan a los estudiantes mediante su tiempo en UEA, ellos entienden que puede ser un poco difícil estar lejos de casa y quieren de que el tiempo que estén aquí sea memorable.

Desde el momento que llegue a UEA y Norwich se sintió como casa. Las personas son muy amigables y hay muchos lugares para visitar y explorar haciéndolo difícil aburrirse. A tan solo tres minutos de la universidad uno puede encontrarse con la naturaleza y hasta ver algunos ponis. Hay muchas sociedades que uno puede unirse, como ser la sociedad de alpinismo, yoga y Latino América, siempre vas a encontrar a alguien con los mismos intereses y formar grandes amistades.

He encontrado amigos para toda la vida con quienes he compartido grandes experiencias, también he aprendido mucho de profesores increíbles que siempre están disponibles para ayudar y nada de esto hubiera sido posible si no hubiera venido a UEA. ¡La universidad ha excedido mis expectativas y estoy segura de que hará lo mismo para ti!

Venezuela / Colombia: Cecilia - BA Society, Culture and Media

My name is Cecilia Calle and I am studying Society, Culture and Media at UEA. I am currently in my second year in the university, and I can honestly say coming here is one of the best decisions I’ve made! Because I was raised in different countries, a multicultural environment was a crucial aspect when choosing where to study, something that I quickly found here at UEA, which is already well known for its academic excellence and high student satisfaction, as well as a very high reputation in media related courses like mine.

In addition, living on campus in my first year allowed me to meet wonderful, diverse people that became very good friends and a helping hand when needed, while also having all the perks of living on campus. Being both Venezuelan and Colombian, living this far away from home felt like a very challenging experience at first, especially because it was the first time I was coming to the UK, but in the space of a few weeks UEA and Norwich became my home away from home.

When first arriving, everything can feel a little intimidating, especially for an international student, because everything feels so different and new compared to what we are used to! But here at UEA, there is always someone to help you when you find yourself in these situations: there are societies for all sorts of interests, services like the Dean of students to help you feel comfortable with your academic skills and constantly improve them, workshops for every aspect of a student’s life, whether it is learning how to use the library or how to write better essays, interesting public lectures, Career and CV services, excellent facilities and a great international environment, you can find it all! All of these services and opportunities were very important for me, because I was coming from a completely different educational system, so I really needed to feel at ease with my academic abilities.

Additionally, I was really charmed by Norwich and all it has to offer. Norwich is a perfect combination of charming little town with endless activities and interesting things going on, and it is so different from anything I had ever experienced before, as cities in South America can be very big and sometimes daunting. It’s a city full of hidden gems, ranging from small little restaurants to a vibrant nightlife, stunning churches and antique shops, and all the great activities a city with both students and a rich history has to offer. The campus is also very beautiful, and has many things to offer. Overall, coming to study at UEA has been an extremely positive experience for me, and it has exceeded my expectations in every way, thanks to all the wonderful things it has to offer, and the welcoming people I’ve met along the way, something very important as a Latin American student!

                                                                                                                                                                        

Mi nombre es Cecilia Calle y estoy estudiando Sociedad, Cultura y Medios en UEA. Este es mi Segundo año en la Universidad, ¡y la verdad es que venir a estudiar en UEA es una de las mejores decisiones que he hecho! Por mi experiencia viviendo y viajando a muchos países en mi infancia y adolescencia, el aspecto multicultural era muy importante para mí y era algo crucial al escoger mi universidad, y es algo que encontré con mucha facilidad aquí en UEA, además de la excelente reputación académica en todas las áreas, y con diplomas relacionados con medios como el mío.

En mi primer año tuve la oportunidad de vivir en las residencias de la universidad,  perfectas para estudiantes y con todo lo positivo de vivir en el campus, sobretodo porque toda la vida académica y social están a cortas distancias. Fue una experiencia que me permitió conocer a gente maravillosa de todas partes del mundo, que siempre están ahí para ayudarme cuando lo necesito, además de tener todos los beneficios de vivir en el campus.

Soy venezolana y colombiana, y eso quiere decir que mi pertenencia cultural es muy fuerte, por lo que se me hizo un poco difícil alejarme tanto de casa, pero en el espacio de algunas semanas Norwich y UEA se volvieron rápidamente un hogar lejos del hogar.

Al llegar por primera vez, todo se siente un poco intimidante, especialmente para un estudiante internacional, ¡porque todo es tan diferente y nuevo en comparación con lo que estamos acostumbrados! Pero aquí, en UEA, siempre hay alguien para ayudar cuando uno se encuentra en estas situaciones: hay sociedades de todo tipo de intereses, servicios como el decano de los estudiantes para ayudarte a sentirte cómodo con tus habilidades académicas y la mejora constante de ellas, talleres para cada aspecto de la vida de un estudiante, si se trata de aprender cómo utilizar la biblioteca o cómo escribir mejores ensayos, conferencias públicas interesantes, servicios de carrera y CV, excelentes instalaciones y un gran entorno internacional, se puede encontrar de todo! Todos estos servicios y oportunidades eran muy importantes para mí, porque yo venía de un sistema educativo completamente diferente, por lo que realmente lo necesitaba para sentirme a gusto con mis habilidades académicas.

Pero no todo son siempre estudios: Norwich es una ciudad muy enigmática, y tiene mucho  que ofrecer. Es una combinación perfecta de la pequeña y encantadora ciudad con un sinfín de actividades y cosas interesantes, y es tan diferente de todo lo que había experimentado antes, sobretodo porque las ciudades latinoamericanas suelen ser muy grandes y a veces sobrecogedoras. Es una ciudad llena de joyas ocultas, que van desde pequeños restaurantes a una vida nocturna para  todas las edades, iglesias impresionantes y tiendas de antigüedades, y todas las actividades de una ciudad con estudiantes y una rica historia tiene que ofrecer. El campus también es muy bonito, y tiene muchas cosas que ofrecer. Venir a estudiar en UEA ha sido una experiencia muy positiva para mí, y ha superado mis expectativas en todos los sentidos, gracias a todas las cosas maravillosas que tiene para ofrecer, y a todas las personas tan acogedoras que he conocido a lo largo del camino, ¡algo muy importante para los estudiantes latinoamericanos!


Mexico: Harlen - MSc Marketing

Hello, my name is Harlen Gonzalez and I am from Chihuahua Mexico. I am currently studying an Msc Marketing degree in the UEA. About two years ago, I started the process of searching for a postgraduate in the UK, I had a few options of universities with marketing programs, but I finally decided to apply to the UEA, a part of the fact that the program is very complete; the university has an excellent academic level, which really helps in obtaining scholarships or funding. The program is really interesting and the lecturers are very well prepared, they're excellent. All the lectures are focused for when the day of tomorrow comes, we can be entrepreneurs instead of employees.

The university is distinguished because of the international students from all around the world, I've had the opportunity of sharing my knowledge, but especially of learning from different cultures; in the time I've been student in the UEA, I have met people from Africa, Greece, India, China, Taiwan, among other countries, and from which I've made really good friends. Besides the academic life, UEA offers a huge range of activities, you can join parties from the International Students Society, concerts which are organized every now and then inside the University and even UEA has its own lake, so you can take a free afternoon to relax and walk around the lake.

Norwich is a beautiful city rich in culture, where you will find an open market, cinemas, cathedrals, museums, among other things, besides the city is really near to London, Cambridge and other interesting cities, so you can easily take a train on a weekend and go travel to other places.
 

Hola, mi nombre es Harlen González y soy de Chihuahua, México. Actualmente estoy estudiando una maestría en Mercadotecnia en la UEA. Hace aproximadamente dos años inicié el proceso de búsqueda para estudiar un posgrado en Inglaterra, tenía varias opciones de universidades que manejan programas de mercadotecnia, pero finalmente decidí aplicar a la UEA ya que además de contar con un programa muy completo, la universidad tiene un excelente nivel académico, lo cual ayuda bastante para encontrar becas o financiamiento. El programa es muy interesante y los maestros que imparten las materias están muy bien preparados, son excelentes. Todas las materias están enfocadas para que el día de mañana seamos emprendedores y no empleados.
 
La universidad se caracteriza porque tiene estudiantes de todo el mundo, he tenido la oportunidad de compartir mis conocimientos pero sobre todo, de aprender acerca de diferentes culturas; en el tiempo que llevo de estudiante en UEA, he conocido personas de África, Grecia, India, China, Taiwán, entre otros países, y de los cuales he hecho muy buenos amigos. Aparte de lo académico, la universidad ofrece una amplia gama de actividades, puedes acudir a fiestas que organiza la Sociedad de Estudiantes Internacionales, conciertos que se organizan de vez en cuando en la universidad e incluso la UEA tiene su propio lago, así que puedes tomarte una tarde para relajarte y dar un paseo.
 
Norwich es una hermosa ciudad llena de cultura, donde encontrarás desde un mercado abierto hasta cines, catedrales, museos, entre otras cosas; además es una ciudad muy segura y la gente es muy amable. La ciudad está muy cerca de Londres, Cambridge y otras ciudades interesantes, así que fácilmente puedes tomar el tren un fin de semana y salir a conocer más lugares.
